    WI: The Sino-Soviet split escalates?

    Due to disagreements about the approach to communism the soviet union and the peoples republic of china split apart diplomatically. But what if China's attempts to take leadership of the communist world escalated into full out war between china and the USSR? Who would win the war and also how...

    Leon Trotsky succeeds Lennin

    What if Lennin was more vocal in his opposition of Stalin, at least vocal enough to discredit Stalin? I think that had this happened, Leon Trotsky would have succeeded Lennin. Why? Because he was supposed to in OTL. Had Trotsky become the leader of the Soviet Union, they would have definitely...
  3. AHC: Monarchism + Communism

    Is there way to make a political system which combines elements of Absolute Monarchy and Communism start getting popular in the 19th century or early 20th century, and become dominant over many large countries, and not just have modern, somewhat different, isolated examples like North Korea...

    WI: Soviets Don't Rise In Russia?

    Otl, to say communism was a big deal is a wee bit of an understatement. So what if we were to have the first communist revolution fail? Say kerensky pulls out of world war one, which his otl failure to do so turned many to the bolshevik cause. What happens to the great war if the CP are bought...

    Can France win in Vietnam?

    Is there a realistic scenario where the French succeed in defeating Ho Chi Minh and basically eradicating the insurgency? If so, what happens to Vietnam long-term? Limited autonomy to placate the population (there were plans for some kind of federation), and/or subsidies like French Guiana...

    Most Likely Time and Place for a Communist Revolution in the US?

    So, I've had this idea bouncing around for a while for a Communist revolution in the United States. One of the (many, many) problems with this scenario is that I haven't the faintest idea where or when to place this supposed revolution. I was thinking the Industrial/Rust Belt Great Lakes states...

    The French Revolution of 1871

    The year is 1871. The harsh rule of Napoleon III in this timeline has tarnished his image in France. Many people sought a return the the old republic, whilst others took a more radical view. Many workers had begun to turn to the ideas of German philosopher Karl Marx for answers. This led to a...
  8. The Pokemon franchise in a socialist Japan

    I'm big fan of the Pokemon franchise since I was 8 years old. In my humble opinion, the Pokemon games and animes are one of the best examples of how japanese culture has influenced all of the world. Recently, a question has come to my mind: How would the Pokemon franchise have developed in a...

    Birth of the Conquering Lion - an Ethiopia/WHF TL

    Alright, just a quick foreword, this is a TL I've made after reading @twistedirregular's Ethiopia TLs and several Ethiopia AARs on Paradox Forums. This is basically combining Earth's past with my Warhammer Fantasy Quest Dynasty of the Woodfolk on Spacebattles and the possible future that would...

    WI: A Communist Spy Overthrows South Vietnam?

    Colonel Pham Ngoc Thao a.k.a Albert Thao was a South Vietnamese colonel who began his military career as the Vietminh's head of espionage in Saigon but renounced communism after the country was divided. He later achieved prominence after putting down a coup led by disloyal officers against...
  11. What if the USSR had decided to keep Bornholm??

    In 1945 the Red Army landed on the danish Island of Bornholm. But after intense negotiations in the fall of 1945, the Red Army left Bornholm in 1946. One of the things the Danes had to promise the USSR was not place any large millitary installations on the Island. But what if these talks had...
  12. USSR "won" in the cold war

    I have allways been interested in this topic, and decided to write a proto-timeline about it. Parts of it are inspired by the video games "Crisis in the Kremlin", "Ostalgie" and "Mao's Legacy", as these games actually provide a good insight into the history and pollitics of many countries (even...

    AHC: Communist Mosley

    I know it might not really change a lot but it seems that there are quite a few "what if x was fascist/communist" threads and there was a recent DBWI Mosley thread so I thought I might give this a go. Basically, how can you get Oswald Mosley to become a communist instead of a fascist? POD should...

    WI Earl Browder is made the minister of labour in 1944?

    The wartime leader of the american communist party, Earl Browder, had a very original take on communism as he believed that the United States due it's own national identity should develop communism based on it's own reality and not try to import the soviet model, something that can be seen on...

    How would a KPD led Germany looks like?

    Well, last week video on the timeghost channel showed how the nazis rose in 1933 and how the KPD while influent, was not great enought to be elect. Let's say that Hitler get's killed in the beer hall putsch and most of the nazis remain self exiled, so the KPD takes over Germany, how does Ernst...

    PC/WI: More autonomous Warsaw Pact bloc?

    With a PoD anywhere between the Yalta Conference in 1945 and the fall of the USSR in 1991, how could we make it so that the Warsaw Pact countries of Eastern Europe, set up IOTL as puppets or clients of the Soviet Union, end up as autonomous from Moscow in regards to international policy as the...
  17. Mormonism in the East Bloc

    I've read about the Freiberg Germany Temple in the former East Germany, which was established for the Mormon (Latter-Day Saints) community of East Germany (who were present in Germany since the 19th century), so they wouldn't have to apply for a visa and visit the West to appear in a Mormon...
  18. A Hungary divided

    This is a TL I've been working on, not sure how plausible it is, or if it will be a coherent storyline, or just a one-shot peppered with snippets of daily life. In this TL, the Soviet Union didn't collapse, and the 1989 Revolutions of Eastern Europe were much more radical and violent, not just...

    WI: Aftermate of a way worse Chernobyl desaster.

    Basically the PoD is that either Brezhnev is granted five more years of life or he notices that his time is short and appoints a hardliner with a similar mindset, that with his support manages to gather enought votes to replace him on the aftermath. When the Chernobyl desaster happens, a very...
  20. AHC/WI: Western country turned "Nazi-Commie"?

    How would the world react if a country in Western Europe suddenly turned to a political direction that can be described as a combination of Nazism and Communism? I'm mainly thinking of Belgium, or possibly a separatist region of the Netherlands, or possibly a part of Eastern Germany. For...
